What would the Kindle have looked like 100 years ago? Here’s a good one; link courtesy of Laughing Squid (“Student Project Cleverly Explains A Kindle To Charles Dickens“):
“Rachel Walsh, a second year illustration student atÂ Cardiff School of Art & Design, was givenÂ an assignmentÂ to â€œexplain something modern/internet based to someone who lived and died before 1900â€³. She decided that Victorian era author Charles DickensÂ needed to be schooled onÂ Amazonâ€™s KindleÂ wireless electronic reading device. To do so, she cleverly devised a way for a big book to hold forty miniature books and did so by cutting spaces in the pages to hold the shrunken titles.”
